How? Are people picking each others' noses without washing their hands first?

But what if you're only picking your nose because you have a really annoying nose hair you're trying to pluck out?

You ever pick you nose and thought that it could be a bit of your brain, so you had better put it back?

phenn: What about blowing a snot rocket into a storm gutter?


I was in a cross country race once and had to do an "air hanky" real bad since I was recovering from a sinus infection.  I accidentally nailed some guy behind me (didn't realize he was there) with this huge, green, pulsating slug of snot right in the center of his chest.  I felt really, really awful about it.

I can't really look at that gif without getting a wee bit nauseous but it was too funny not to post.

Of course. Where else do pheromones come from?

If we were not intended to pick our noses, our index finger would not be nostril sized.  Sometimes you just gotta get that clump that is still tethered by nose hairs driving you crazy.  Just don't do it in public.

Did Ted Cruz Just Eat a Booger?

The Freakstorm Plague was an event that started in 2019 when noted pain in the ass Harold Freakstorm flicked a 'booger' on to the windshield of a 1992 Grand Prix.  Within weeks, the St. Louis area was decimated. Attempts to contain the plague were failures and the first global pandemic of the 21 century began.

In a year, global population was reduced 80%.  Brought up on nose crimes by the Hague, Freakstorm accepted responsibility but avowed any intention.  When informed that 80% of the world's population was gone, Harry reportedly said "I guess I should be careful for what I wish for."  He was sentenced to die but because most of the remaining world's population was female, he was sentenced to snu-snu.

A while ago I had the pleasure of taking my mother to the nose doctor. There he fished large white things out of her nose with a camera and vacuum cleaner that can be shoved up the nose. Your nose pickings do nothing for me after seeing nose fungus and snot getting hoovered up on an LCD monitor hanging in the room.

You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you shouldn't pick your friend's nose.

Ha! Shows what YOU know, Subby.
I prefer to pick other people's noses while in public anyway.
TAKE THAT!

ProTip: Grow out your pinky nail a little, and it's like your own personal nose scraper.
